You know - with this new guy I'm with - my boyfriend ... he's 37, I'm 34. He's got kids. Sometimes I feel like I do all of the work. Of course, he does all of the cooking - but I am the one to have to drive over to HIS place all the time - which is MORE convenient, I know. For both of us.
Because I live with my family - and its not convenient to have them all over here. But then ... like just now ... I called him about an hour or two ago - and it's like I always have to call HIM. You know? And why hasn't he called back, when I know he's at home loafing around?
Like ... what's up with that? And how do I APPROACH him with that concern - like How do I SAY THAT to him? You know? I mean - I really do think he's into me - but then, sometimes I think, gosh I make this pretty easy for him.
Always running around for him. I do a lot for his kids. Take care of them and play with them. And I don't think he should be at my beck and call - but why doesn't he call me back - or even take the initiative and call me first? You know?
And my ex-H was an alcoholic, so I did EVERYTHING, you know? My ex was LAZY - so it all fell on me. So ... I dunno. I just don't want this to be a pattern.
Where I GIVE. Giving is wonderful and is a joy - but I don't want to be EASY. You know? Am I making sense? So ... should I say something to him? If so ... what do I say? How do I say it?
